Consultation sought

Native leaders want say on casino

Missing during road trip

Semiahmoo First Nation councillor Joanne Charles said her people have not been consulted about a proposed casino in South Surrey. Charles was speaking at a Wednesday morning public forum hosted by residents with concerns about the proposed $100-million casino, hotel and convention centre complex at 10 Avenue and 168 Street “It’s a stone’s throw away from our traditional territory,” Charles said, complaining the proponents of the casino haven’t approached the Semiahmoo. Other than a single letter of notification, “we have not heard from them,” Charles said. She promised the Semiahmoo band will be demanding “full consultation.” The forum at the ABC restaurant on King George Boulevard was the second casino forum organized by BC NDP Surrey-White Rock candidate Susan Keeping. Many of the people who attended the first forum on Sunday, Nov. 4, were among the approximately 60 who attended the early morning meeting Wednesday. › see page A4

Searchers are looking for a missing White Rock man in the Twelve Mile area south of Revelstoke after his car was discovered there Monday. Efforts to locate David Anthony Klammer – including an “intensive search” Tuesday – were unsuccessful as of Peace Arch News’ press deadline Wednesday afternoon. The 39-year-old was reported missing by his family on Oct. 21, 13 days after he left his parents’ home in Saskatoon, Sask. Police say Klammer’s backpack was located on Oct. 26 in the brush alongside a logging road. Discovery of Klammer’s white 2003 Subaru Impreza at the end of the logging road – known as David Klammer Airport Way – where White Rock man it meets the Columbia River, on Nov. 5 prompted an air search. Revelstoke RCMP Sgt. Kim Hall said Wednesday that camping equipment was found inside Klammer’s vehicle, and his bag was located on the flats of the river, about 200 metres from his car. “We haven’t determined if it was broken down or not,” Hall said. Police have no evidence that Klammer had a canoe or kayak with him, or that he was fishing on the river. “Any missing person is always a mystery,” Hall said. “There’s so many things that could happen. He could have got out of his vehicle to go for a walk and animal life took over. He could have got out of his vehicle and went down to check the water and fell in. We don’t know. Was he even down there? We don’t know.” The semi-remote area is known for wildlife, especially bears. There are some low bluffs adjacent to the Columbia River about 500 metres from where Klammer’s car was found. › see page A4

racing and visit a casino will go to Fraser Downs, while those seeking out more of an entertainment venue mixed with gambling would head to South Surrey – theoretically. A large convention centre is an advantage, and will be wellutilized. However, the casino business in the Lower Mainland is close to saturation point, in my view. Gambling seems to have leveled off at many casinos and revenues to cities, which is the prime reason most councils will agree to host a casino, have evened off. The South Surrey location is also very close to the border and not far from U.S. casinos, which do attract a lot of Canadian gamblers. Whether it can keep more of them on this side of the line is debatable. Can they attract enough new gamblers to help boost the take that Surrey will receive? That is also questionable. Obviously, no proponent is going to build a facility that isn’t likely to turn a profit. However, it appears that the two main casino companies in B.C. – Gateway and Great Canadian – want to keep building more of them. If there is a market for more casinos in Surrey, fine. But a new casino, entertainment centre and hotel needs to be located in an appropriate area. It will be interesting to follow this debate as it continues, through public meetings and other discussion. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

Ocean Park businesses rushed to salvage food last weekend

Merchants ‘left in dark’ over power cut Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Dan Ferguson photo

Penny Verrando lost ice cream in outage.

Owners of several businesses in a 128 Street strip mall in Ocean Park said they had to scramble to find cold-storage facilities for their food products after a BC Hydro crew unexpectedly cut power last weekend. David Narod, owner of Piquant Gourmet Specialties, one of six businesses located in the Ocean Centre mall near 16 Avenue, said the first notice he had that Hydro was planning to cut power to his business was when the alarm company phoned him Sunday morning to let him know there was no electricity. Narod arrived to find the lights out and no power to run the walk-in cooler and other

refrigerators he uses to keep his food fresh. He was able to relocate the food to a friend’s cold storage faxility. Penny Verrando, owner of the Delitalia Fine Food Italian Deli next door, didn’t find out until she arrived at the store that morning. “I walked into my store at 9 o’clock and it’s black,” Verrando said. She said she was able to find cold storage for most of the food in her store, except for some ice cream treats that melted. “I have nine coolers,” Verrando said. “It was difficult.” Judy Jones, owner of the Weathered Rooster, arrived shortly before Verrando. When she discovered the power was out, she spoke to the crews working on a nearby

utility pole. Jones said they told her the wooden pole was being replaced because it had signs of rot near the top. When she checked with her landlord, Jones said she was told Hydro had notified him power would be cut, but not when. She and the other owners say they received no notice of the planned power outage, but the power company claims they did. “They insist that somebody told us,” Verrando sad. But when she demanded to know how notice was given, she said the company was unable to provide details. A BC Hydro spokesperson apologized to the customers through PAN Wednesday, admitting that four customers were not notified.

Housing development

Tree concerns delay vote Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The City of Surrey has postponed a vote on a proposed housing development near Kensington Prairie Community Centre that would require cutting down 533 trees – most of which are considered “high value.” A developer went before council Monday seeking an amendment to the North Grandview Heights Neighbourhood Community Plan to develop a 29.2-acre parcel of property on 32 Avenue near 168 Street to include 64 family homes on half-acre lots. A city staff report to council indicates 533 trees on the site would come down, 257 of which are alder or cottonwood (often referred to as “scrub” trees because they don’t survive development well). The developer had planned to save 45 of 321 “higher value” trees, a retention ratio of 14 per cent. “Given the steep slopes on the property, and the necessary grading to achieve an acceptable subdivision design layout, on-site tree retention at this rate is considered reasonable in the context of the existing NCP designation,” the report to council states. The trees slated to come down in the plan include Western red cedar (153), big leaf maple (65), Douglas fir (27), paper birch (14) and others. The builder planned to plant four or five trees on each lot – a total of 436 trees – 40 per cent of which would be native conifers. The bylaw requires 809 be planted, so the developer would pay cash in lieu. “Staff anticipates there will be a significant visual impact associated with the clearing and development of this site,” the report to council states. To mitigate that, the developer was planning to take down the trees in phases. The proposal was sent back to staff Monday for review “to address the concerns… raised during the regular council land use meeting regarding slope preservation.”

Washington, Colorado voters support recreational drug possession

B.C. focuses on U.S. marijuana vote Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. pot-reform advocates are celebrating Washington state’s historic vote this week to legalize and tax marijuana, saying it adds momentum to their campaign for change here. Tuesday, Initiative 502 passed with 55 per cent of voters in favour, and a similar vote passed in Colorado, making them the first two U.S. states to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults. “Tell everyone I’m elated – it’s the biggest day of our movement ever,” Marc Emery, B.C.’s imprisoned Prince of Pot, tweeted from his U.S. jail cell. His wife, Jodie Emery, celebrated the win in Seattle –  where her husband was indicted for selling pot seeds – with Washington campaigners, including travel guru Rick Steves and the U.S. prosecutor-turned-reformer who put Marc behind bars. It’s still unclear if the U.S. federal government will allow the state to carry out the plan to license marijuana production and tax its sale. But observers say the implications are huge for both the existing B.C. bud industry and the intensifying debate on drug-policy reform. “American voters are now ahead of Canadian

governments on the cannabis file,” said former B.C. attorney general Geoff Plant, a highprofile reformer with the Stop the Violence coalition. “It helps advance the argument for legalization here in B.C.” Rob Gordon, director of SFU’s school of criminology, says it could spur a more serious consideration of legalization both in B.C. and in other U.S. states if “the sky doesn’t fall” in Washington and the state starts reaping a windfall of weed revenue. “The dominoes could start toppling,” he said. Washington estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a planned 25 per cent tax on the sale of licensed, regulated marijuana through authorized stores. “Whether or not their federal government is going to tolerate this remains to be seen,” Gordon said. If the sale of pot is allowed in Washington, Gordon expects a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry as growers relocate their operations south of the border to avoid the need to smuggle. “The operations in B.C. would shrink considerably –  they’d be focused entirely on patchy local consumption,” he said. “It’s a huge step forward,” said B.C. marijuana

activist Dana Larsen, who heads the Sensible BC campaign to force a provincial referendum on pot decriminalization using the Recall and Initiative Act. Premier Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix both say marijuana reform is up to the federal government, and the prime minister has said the Conservatives won’t loosen Canada’s drug laws. Plant said he prefers full marijuana legalization, rather than decriminalization, which doesn’t allow regulation and taxation. “Full legalization removes the economic incentive for the illegal manufacture and distribution,” Plant said. “People can get it safer from a retail outlet at a price that is reasonable. That should eliminate substantially all of the economic underpinnings for the organized crime control of the market.” Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who opposes marijuana use on grounds ranging from health to impaired-driving risks, said it’s a fantasy to think gangs would fade away. “That is living in a dream world,” he said. “They’re not going to hang up their skates and become legal business people.” But Plant says anything that helps sap the strength of gangs would help.

Rider critically injured

ATV in head-on collision Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A collision between a quad all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) and a pickup truck in South Surrey late Monday afternoon critically injured a 22-year-old Langley man. It happened around 4:30 p.m. near 192 Street and 37 Avenue. Police said the man was heading north on 192 Street, following a pickup truck driven by his girlfriend.

They were heading to a gravel pit to practise with the quad, when the girlfriend apparently missed a turn and suddenly applied the brakes. The man on the ATV swerved to avoid a rear-end collision, into oncoming traffic where he was hit by a pickup truck pulling a utility trailer. The injured man was airlifted to hospital with what were described as critical injuries including multiple fractures and a collapsed lung. The investigation into the crash is continuing.

Crime fears ‘unsupported by facts’ › from page A1 And like the first meeting, most of the discussion was dominated by casino opponents such as area resident Don Murray. “I hate to see government become addicted to casino revenue,” Murray said. A number of speakers said the proposal should be voted on by residents before final approval is granted. Terry McNeice, president of the South Surrey Ratepayers Association was one of the referendum supporters. “This is not a done deal,” McNeice said. Another speaker, Bill Hatton, said the casino should foot the bill. “They must have a referendum and it should be paid for by Gateway,” Hatton said. Gateway Casinos and Entertainment general counsel James Chen, who was present at the forum, said the company was not legally required to fund an opinion poll. “We’re prepared to comply with

In response to several speakers who predicted crime would rise if the casino goes in, Gateway community liaison Tanya Gabara told the forum an independent study found crime around a casino either stays the same or even drops. “It does not bring crime to your area,” Gabara said. Gateway was scheduled to hold

its own public forum Wednesday evening, after PAN’s press deadline. Another forum organized by casino opponents will be held Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Pacific Inn, 1160 King George Blvd., starting at 7 p.m. The mayors of White Rock, Surrey and representatives of the casino and lottery agency have been invited, organizers say.

Princeton area after that. Klammer’s last documented visit to Revelstoke was on Sept. 21, well before he went missing. He bought fuel at the Revelstoke Shell station. Police believe he gassed up en route from White Rock to Saskatoon. “We think he just was travelling through,” Hall said. “There’s nothing to indicate that he had connections here in Revelstoke. Nothing at all.” While cold, wet weather Wednesday stalled the search

effort, police and search-andrescue crews were planning to get back to it Thursday (Nov. 8), when they’ll target an area “more north of where the backpack was located,” Hall said. Klammer is described as a Caucasian male, six-foot-two and 196 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes, and could be wearing a brown leather jacket with a brown hoodie. Anyone with information on Klammer is asked to call Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255.

Surrey is preparing to spend $5 million on furniture for the new city hall being built in the City Centre. A staff report to council this week recommends awarding a contract to Vancouver-based Heritage Office Furniture Ltd. for $4.7 million, excluding HST, which will bring it to more than $5 million. The furniture will include: office furniture, systems furniture and

components, free-standing furniture, seating, desks and tables, filing systems such as cabinets and lockers, support services, and accessories such as lighting and signage. Three companies bid on the contract, including Brooks Corning/Haworth, Knoll/The Office Resource and Heritage.

The furniture will be paid for out of the entire budget for the new city hall. Surrey is borrowing $97 million from the Municipal Finance Authority to pay for the building, but will pay $37 million of that back through the lease of its existing building at 142 Street and Highway 10. The new 180,000-sq.-ft. city hall will be built on the south side of 104 Avenue, east of University Boulevard. It is scheduled to be complete by September 2013.

n Sunday many of us will gather around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We’ll hear words like sacrifice and honour, some of them uttered by politicians. But for some veterans – and for Jim Scott, advocate and chair of White Rock-based Equitas Disabled Soldiers Funding Society – they’ll ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament passed the New Veterans Charter that changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to inflation, most veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sump settlement. Veterans Affairs champions the new system as “a more complete approach to helping our men and women injured in the line of duty,” offering them “real hope.” But injured veterans say otherwise. They say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour are getting substantially less support than they would have received with the former indexed pension. Last week, Equitas filed a class-action lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court to improve compensation for disabled servicemen and women. Scott knows all about the situation for disabled veterans – his own son Dan, 26, was caught in a landmine explosion while serving in Afghanistan, and received a lump sum payment of just over $41,000 for injuries that included loss of his spleen, a kidney and a collapsed left lung. A measure of support in this community is the fact that last week Jim Scott was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal by Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg, partly in recognition of his work on behalf of disabled veterans. But support for the organization’s position can be found all across Canada. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only two-thirds the compensation under the new charter than they would have from the old act. Even in death, indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay towards the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with honour.

appreciation for the story of the Princess and the Pea. A tiny pine cone under one of those things was akin to trying to sleep while draped over a lawnmower. Yet those weight savings were allimportant, because although the backpacks of the day were transitioning from wood frames to aluminum tubing, the manufacturers still hadn’t fully grasped the concept of ergonomic design. Therefore, the equation was simple: More weight equals more pain. For me, the bliss of backpacking wore off over the years, regardless of the hightech advances. The only “packing” I do now is if I’m fortunate enough to get game. And in that regard, I’ve found the ultimate solution. My two regular partners both have about a half a foot in height, and 50 pounds of muscle mass over me. Now it’s just a matter of a friendly “Fetch!” There are still occasions when brute force trumps technology. There is one thing about the great outdoors that science has never improved upon, nor should it. And on one of my recent trips, I must say, I sorely missed this particular aspect. Due to extremely dry conditions, we had to pass on a camp fire. If you love the outdoors, you know that an evening fire is integral to the experience. There is just nothing like the penetrating warmth, and the swirling colours of a wood blaze. Sometimes, the simplest things are best. Andrew Holota is the editor of the Abbotsford News.

Reasons to remember Editor: In the weeks leading up to Nov. 11, it is not surprising to see veterans and cadets stationed at the doors of supermarkets and shopping centres selling poppies. Recently, I stopped by a young cadet, on duty in full uniform, and asked him if he knew the story of the poppy. His response was “no.” I told him his education had failed him, and I proceeded to tell him about In Flanders Fields. As I left, I suggested he Google the poem and also advise his superiors of his incomplete preparation for selling poppies. “…we will remember them.” Charles Grierson, Surrey n They leave family at home These women and men Traveling to all four corners of this blue planet Weapons of steel and wood Cloth to bandage wounds Some to conquer, others to bring peace Uniforms to rags they suffer They do what they have been told They suffer for doing it And too many died doing it We honour them with a tear We cry for our loss Flowers to say we still remember We buy poppies to support the survivors The survivors among us we salute We listen to the past and what they have to say They walk with us Once a year we gather to remember these fallen souls Let us honour the living We pray that the number of fallen and wounded soldiers get fewer and fewer Mike Stuyt, Surrey

Emotions build over smoking An open letter to Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Fraser Health. Re: Cancer patients struggle with gauntlet, Oct. 16. A couple of weeks ago, Peace Arch News had an article about the smoking outside the cancer clinic by Surrey Hospital, and after that some letters to the editor. My husband had major lung cancer surgery a couple of months ago and is now having chemotherapy at the clinic. On Friday, Oct. 26, we were met by a man with a cigarette in his hand, sitting on the bench beside the parking meter, and I asked him if he had not seen the ‘no smoking’ sign beside his left shoulder. “What sign?” he said, and I pointed at it. “Well, I haven’t lit it,” he said. As we went away, I turned and he’d already lit it and was smoking. We turned the corner, and on the bench reserved for patients waiting for transport, a couple was sitting – she was in a kind of “nighty” and

was smoking. So I asked if she was not aware of the big ‘no smoking’ sign beside her, and she yelled after me: “I have permission from the fire department!” Two hours later, I had to put more money in the parking meter, and the same two people were again sitting on that bench; this time both were smoking. So I said: “You have no respect for cancer patients. What you do is not permitted.” She yelled a lot after me… When my husband’s treatment was finally over one hour later, we went out to our car, and she was – as far as I had observed – sitting on that bench for the third time smoking. I could not help myself and said: “What you do is illegal, what is your name?” And she answered that it was illegal of me to ask her name. Last Friday, we were at the clinic again and, on those same two benches, people were smoking. As I went outside to pay more for parking, more people were smoking, on the benches, by the meters and in front of the door to the hospital.

When we left, the same woman from the Friday before was again smoking. My question is: What is the mayor and Fraser Health doing with this problem? We read in the paper that it was against the bylaws to smoke, and there are lots of signs, but nobody seems to respect these signs. It is a terrible stress having chemotherapy and also being the spouse of someone suffering, and then have to walk through that “fog” of smoke and smell. It would seem the right thing to do is to have bylaw officers there often enough to fine all these people, so maybe they will realize that their unlawful conduct and lack of respect will have consequences. Anne-Lill Christoffersen, White Rock n Re: Enforce rules for smokers, Oct. 25 letters. When I read the letter, I was so angry. I can’t believe the ignorance! Smokers outside of Starbucks are not breaking the law. Where the heck can they smoke? They are already outside.

If the letter writer can’t breathe, maybe she should run down the back alley. She should shut her mouth. I am so tired of whiners. What about the buses and cars? Doesn’t their exhaust hurt you, too? Smoking is not illegal. Karen Fox, Surrey

Hush little toddlers Editor: I visited Semiahmoo Library on Sunday and was disturbed how parents who bring their toddlers to the library permit them to scream, cry and commit all the nuisances that are disturbing to other users. I applaud these families for taking the time to bring their children to the library and spending quality reading and computer time with them, but this should not be at the expense of other users.

Plans for a casino-hotel-conference centre are due to be brought to the City of Surrey for consideration.

Not worth the gamble in our area Editor: A mini-Vegas for South Surrey? We don’t know why some people think it’s a good idea to put a casino and convention centre on 168 Street at 10 Avenue – 168th is a quiet street which much wildlife used to cross. We quite often see deer, owls, raccoons, rabbits to name a few. This area is also home to many rare birds. These animals all call this area home. When they started putting up homes near the truck crossing, we saw a huge increase in wildlife activity. We already have a hotel and convention centre – which locals call “the Pink Palace” – that is never busy. Why do we need another one? Cloverdale is not far. They have one. We feel the approval of this gaming centre will have a negative impact on our quiet street that is mostly farms. We feel it will create much unwanted traffic and property theft. Let’s not forget the wildlife that call this area home. We already have a raccoon that has taken over our tool shed and deer that somehow get stuck in our front yard that end up stressed out because they can’t figure out how to get out of the yard. We do not wish for this development to be approved. Terry & Debbie Nociar, Surrey n It was with great dismay that I read former White Rock councillor Cliff Annable’s comments regarding the proposed casino for South Surrey. A $100-million complex, 60,000-square-foot facility, 27,000-sq.-ft. convention centre with a 1,200-vehicle

parking lot that he contends will not have a huge effect on the community. This complex will be built directly across the street from a residential area. It will have a direct and negative impact on the residents living there. Apparently this casino will rival Great Canadian’s River Rock and Boulevard Casino. The reason those two facilities were successfully built without opposition was because they were built in commercial industrial areas, not across the street from people’s homes. I know, as I worked at Great Canadian at the time the facilities were being built. The public input was vitally important, and they were careful to choose sites that would not impact negatively on the daily life of citizens. Annable has said the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce is 110 per cent for this proposal and this is the best thing since sliced bread to happen to the community. I wonder if he would feel that way if it were being built in his backyard? What happened to public consultation? That appears to be happening after the fact. My neighbours and my husband and I enjoy going to casinos but all agree that they should be built away from residential areas. They are open 24 hours a day. How will that not impact us? Not to mention the decreased value of our properties. Ask yourself if you would want to live a few blocks away from a convention centre and casino. I strongly urge council to think seriously about this proposal and find another location in a commercial area. Lindsay MacLeod Michaud, Surrey

NEW ACCENT WINDOW FASHIONS

Advocates urging for more discussion on disease

Pushing for Alzheimer’s plan Alex Browne

ALSO

Staff Reporter

Alzheimer’s patient Dorothy Morgan has a message for politicians of all stripes and affiliations in Victoria. “I think the government of this province is in for the shock of its life when it wakes up to find there’s a crisis,” she said. That crisis is expected as more and more of the baby boom generation reach the age when they’re at the greatest risk for developing Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Morgan – who was diagnosed in 2009, but still manages to function at a comparatively high level – was one of the most outspoken of some 30 people who last week attended a first community meeting, sponsored by the Alzheimer Society of B.C., launching Jim’s Push For A Plan, at White Rock’s Centre for Active Living. The initiative is spearheaded by South Surrey’s Jim Mann, who was himself diagnosed with dementia in 2007 at the age of 58, and has since been a tireless speaker and advocate raising awareness for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. His pitch, which he vows to bring to elected politicians, aspiring candidates and business and community leaders in the lead-up to the next provincial election, is that B.C. needs a provincial dementia plan now, before a “rising tide” of dementia cases engulfs the health care system, overwhelming hospitals, long-term care facilities, caregivers, families and home support workers. “I’m pushing for a plan and I’m pushing real hard,” said Mann, a former communications professional who has written about his experiences with dementia for the Peace Arch News. Mann said some 70,000 people

Dorothy Morgan and Jim Mann launched Jim’s Push for a Plan. in B.C. have already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or some other dementia, and every year some 15,000 more develop the symptoms, increasing the financial burden on B.C. residents through increased public health spending. For each of those cases, there are three or four others whose lives are directly affected by the emotional and financial tolls, he said – and it’s probable the number of those dealing with dementia, either directly or as a relative or caregiver, will increase exponentially now the baby boomer generation is reaching its senior years. Mann noted that while Alzheimer’s and other dementias are not a function of old age – his diagnosis at a comparatively early age is a case in point – the risk factor increases with age. “The associated costs to B.C. will reach a crisis point,” he said, predicting the crunch will come during the next four years.

“It won’t be at some far-off point – it’ll be during the mandate of the next government.” Although local MLAs and declared candidates had been invited to the Oct. 30 meeting, none was there during Mann’s address to the group (although a representative of Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg was present). The majority of those who attended from the community were either patients or their caregivers. But Mann said following his speech the meeting was just a first step in an extended campaign through the Alzheimer Society. And he urged those present to talk to neighbours about the campaign, write letters to media and meet with MLAs and MLA candidates.

Ninety-two additions coming to South Surrey/White Rock

Care beds on the horizon Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health is seeking private partners to supply more than 400 new residential complex care and mental health beds in Surrey, White Rock and the Tri-Cities to house challenging elderly patients who can otherwise congest local hospitals. More than half of the new beds – 216 – are earmarked for the TriCities, while 95 are to be added in Surrey north of 40 Avenue and the remaining 92 would go to South Surrey/White Rock, although funding for that block of beds won’t be available until spring of 2016. Most of the new beds are to open in 2015. Residential complex care beds are for higher risk patients who need 24-hour professional care for severe behavioural or cognitive problems, who can’t be served through community services and can’t safely live with caregivers at home. Delta was cut out of the health authority’s call for pre-qualifications. That community is losing 70 publicly funded beds for older psychiatric patients at Delta View Habilitation Centre after a dispute over funding levels led operators to terminate their contract with Fraser Health.

Surrey author brings story of his father to life

A gallop into history Poor bastard. He looked down at his own legs, splayed out in front of him, at Toby, lying still, at the other huddled shapes on the ground, men and horses. Poor bastards. – An excerpt from Soldier of the Horse, by Robert W. Mackay Boaz Joseph

R

Black Press

obert Mackay describes his partners at a Cloverdale law firm as understanding when he told them he was heading for greener pastures in 2007. The pastures he was thinking of, an area of partly-wooded French farmland, weren’t for retirement, however. He was eyeing a spot just east of the town of Moreuil on the River Avre, about 20 kilometres south of Amiens. Mackay, who had been thinking of writing a historical novel for some time, had just realized that the following spring, March 30, 2008, would be the 90th anniversary of an unlikely First World War battle that involved some 3,000 sword-wielding Canadians on horseback charging the lines of Germans equipped with machine guns – long after trench warfare had relegated such actions as obsolete. One of those Canadians, both legs riddled with bullets just minutes into the battle, was Thomas Mackay, his father. ••• Four years into a new and grisly industrial war, with its machine guns, poison gas, barbed wire and the new weapons of tanks and airplanes, the Battle of Moreuil Wood was an anachronism. In one of last such instances in the history, Lord Strathcona’s Horse, a regiment still in existence today, charged the 23rd Saxon Division at Moreuil (pronounced “Moray”), helping to rein in what was, broadly, part of the last major German offensive on the Western Front during the First World War. “The tide started to be turned on March the 30th when the Canadians stopped them at Moreuil,” says Mackay, a 70-year-old South Surrey man. After those defensive battles that the Allied forces weathered in the spring, the Germans were pushed back towards their

border until the armistice was signed on Nov. 11, 1918. ••• Growing up, Robert Mackay learned about the battle from his father Thomas, who was 48 when Robert was born in 1942. He talked “more than the average dad, that’s for sure,” recalls Robert. “He told me lots of the good things and left out lots of the bad. More than once, he commented that the years of the First

World War were the best ones of his life, which is pretty odd.” He remembered the camaraderie and the pride in the cavalry. “He was pretty badly wounded, but he had a pretty full life after that,” Robert says. The elder Mackay was a cavalryman in “C” Squadron of Lord Strathcona’s Horse, a military regiment born on the Prairies in 1900. The officer in charge was Lt. Gordon Flowerdew, who was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross for action in the Battle of Moreuil Wood. From April 1915 on, Canadian cavalrymen alternated every two weeks between trench duty (on foot) and waiting, mounted, well behind the front lines for the order to charge – one that would take three years to come. On March 30, 1918, Mackay’s squadron, already whittled down to about 75 men and horses through attrition, was ordered by British Maj.-Gen. Jack Seely to charge the Germans around the north corner of a wood, while other Canadians – The Strathconas, the Royal Canadian Dragoons, and the Fort Garry Horse – charged straight through the trees. “Flowerdew was supposed to sweep around the corner of the wood and attack the Germans as they were retreating.”

Robert Mackay recounts the battle as his father told him: The Canadians ran into two lines of German machine guns. “It was too late to do anything but charge, so they charged at the gallop with their swords. “My dad was in among the Germans when his horse went down – basically killed – and my dad was wounded very badly in the legs by machine gun fire.” But the Canadians had surprised the defenders enough that they couldn’t aim their machine guns higher than the legs of the horses, and as casualties mounted in the melee, the Germans began to scatter. ••• In 1986, a French farmer named Jean Paul Brunel was plowing his field when he saw what he thought was a boot. He jumped off his tractor, and found the remains of a Canadian soldier who was identified through his dog tags as John James Willoughby, a member of Thomas Mackay’s regiment. Willoughby’s name was already listed as dead, but his body was never found. Brunel, learning about the battle on the land he owned and aware of the fact that his village had been flattened by the Germans, went on to become a historian and fan of the Canadian cavalry. › see page A12

Father ‘standing over my shoulder’ › from page A11 In time for the Battle of Moreuil Wood’s 90th anniversary in 2008, Brunel met the visiting Robert Mackay, and helped him piece together more information to guide Mackay’s novel, Soldier of the Horse, which was published in 2011. Meeting Brunel “allowed me to walk the ground, which I find is very important as a writer,” notes Mackay. There was reciprocity, too. “He was very excited to meet me simply because my father had been there. It’s very common for him to meet grandchildren and great-grandchildren, of (First World War) veterans, but not children... not somebody who had known and lived a normal life with one of the fellows.” Although Mackay has the historical facts straight in his novel, the dialogue is fiction – otherwise it might have been a conjectural biography of a soldier from Winnipeg. Mackay had to make up the character of Thomas’ first wife, who died before Robert was born. (Robert was born to Thomas’ second wife). Thomas was a sergeant at the time of the battle – for the third time, after several demotions and promotions – so his literary counterpart too gets in and out

The protagonist, however, is named Tom Macrae. “I changed my dad’s name,” explains Mackay. “It was more or less a trick I had to pull on myself because when I was writing the book, it was as if he was standing over my shoulder.” The real Thomas Mackay passed away in 1969.

Cruise Holidays ‘Presidents Cruise 2013’ Last week I attended one of the premier networking and educational events for our company... The 2012 Cruise Holidays Annual Convention. This year it was held on board Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas..... the largest Cruise Ship in the world with 5400 passengers aboard.. Approximately 250 Cruise Holidays franchise owners, agents and top cruise industry executives attended the event. It was a wonderful experience! Royal Caribbean definitely delivered the WOW! factor…entertaining so many people with no line ups and no crowded areas, was beyond my understanding! Lots of dining options, wonderful entertainment and balcony cabins overlooking the fabulous Boardwalk. She’s a beautiful ship and with so much to see and do, you couldn’t possibly “do it all ” in one week! For Cruise Holidays franchise owners, located across North America, the United Kingdom and also Australia, participants learned about the latest industry trends, networked with each other, sharing marketing ideas and discussing in depth new opportunities to keep Cruise Holidays one of the leading travel companies in the cruise industry. On awards night, Cruise Holidays of White Rock was presented with the Presidents Circle award for the 5th consecutive year. This award is given to the top 20 offices within the Cruise Holidays system for outstanding sales and service.

Max Tell helps students craft first-person war letters

Telling their stories Alex Browne Staff Reporter

As some learn it in school, history can be simply a bunch of dry facts, a catalogue of names and dates without particular meaning or resonance. That’s not the way Werner Kashel likes to approach it with his Grade 5-6 class at Peace Arch Elementary. A self-confessed history buff, he likes to bring in artifacts from his personal collection of Canadiana to inspire his students. For the class’s Remembrance Day project on the First World War – Letters From The Trenches – Kashel not only brought in artifacts, like an authentic mess tin, but also White Rock storyteller Max Tell (aka Robert Stelmach) for several days to guide students in creating their own understanding of the conflict. In the project, students used their own research and imagination to create

Waterfront Parking Great news! From November 1 – April 30 it now only costs $1.50 per hour for waterfront parking between the hours of 10 a.m. – midnight. Come visit the waterfront, a great place to visit and to conduct business and luncheon meetings. For more parking information, call Parking Services at 604.541.2148.

They could be Canadian rank and file soldiers, officers, medical corps personnel, nurses – even aviators. But, as Kashel and Tell explained to the class, they were looking not just for facts, but also emotion as students wrote their ‘personal’ experiences of a war fought more than 80 years before they were born. “It’s different trying to write a letter as if I’m a soldier in

World War One,” said Grade 6 student Ronan Hannigan. “It’s interesting to try to think of that kind of experience. I can’t know what it was, but I can imagine what it would be like.” “I think it’s important the students have an understanding of why we have the freedoms we have today,” Kashel said.

Memory Project seeking veterans to share their stories

Collection of memories to preserve history Wanda Chow Black Press

While some funding for The Memory Project will be ending in March, the work will continue to preserve oral histories of aging veterans for future generations. In the past year, the project has added more than 350 interviews with Korean War veterans to its online archive and a similar number for Second World War veterans. While funding from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage will end for the interviews about Second World War experiences, the Historica-Dominion Institute will continue the work, said Alex Herd, project manager for the Memory Project.  Herd noted that while Second World War veterans – including South Surrey’s Harry Anderson – are often willing to be interviewed, sometimes with the encouragement of their families, it can be more challenging to get Korean War veterans to participate. That’s largely due to the fact that for decades, they were not even considered war veterans.  That war, which took place between 1950 and 1953, was officially deemed a “police action” by then-U.S. president Harry Truman for political

South Surrey’s Harry “Andy” Anderson – a Second World War veteran– has a page in The Memory Project. At right, a page of Anderson’s log book. and diplomatic reasons, Herd explained. While the veterans experienced war-like conditions, it was not considered a war and

afterwards, they didn’t receive the same benefits as their counterparts from the Second World War.

The staff and residents of Christina Place salute our service men and women for their bravery

It wasn’t until after years of lobbying that Korean War veterans were publicly recognized by the federal government as war veterans in the early 1990s. That’s all contributed to a reticence among many such veterans to share their stories, Herd said.  The project “is part of our effort to give them the respect they’ve been due, to encourage them to come forward and share their stories, to show them they’re valued members of society and their stories are valued parts of our history,” he said, “and also to educate all Canadians of all generations and backgrounds on what has been a war that’s been neglected in our historical instruction at every level in the country.” He noted that people in Korea continue to be very grateful for Canadians’ efforts in keeping that

country free. The project has also digitized more than 1,600 artifacts for its archives. They borrow artifacts from veterans they interview and photograph or scan them for inclusion in the online archive before returning them. Such artifacts include photos, medals, pieces of shrapnel and communist propaganda. One intriguing piece was a Chinese coin picked up on the battlefield by a Korean War veteran who was eventually wounded and bled on the coin. For some reason, he never cleaned the blood off. Others came from a Second World War veteran who was in prisoner-of-war camps in Italy and Germany. To pass the time he drew comics to entertain himself and his fellow prisoners, which are now reproduced and in the archives, as is a piece of his ration bread that he received in the camp, which he kept in a bag as a memento all these years. The Memory Project is still seeking veterans of the Second World War or Korean War to participate. For more information visit www. thememoryproject.com or call 1-866-701-1867.

emembrance Day on November 11 commemorates the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year 1918. This is when the Armistice was signed and is also the date marking the official end of the First World War. To commemorate this day, you are invited to participate in the annual Poppy Campaign, the Royal Canadian Legion’s main source of fundraising, which allows this organization to continue its work with veterans in need. Nowadays, Remembrance Day includes all wars that have occurred since the Great War. Indeed, there has not been a single day since 1918 that has not been marked by a war or armed conflict somewhere on this planet. So, to put an end to all wars, people across the country wear poppies in their lapels and decorate war memorials with wreaths and bunches of poppies on November 11.

In memory of those who fought so bravely

Why poppies? Because this red flower recalls the famous poem “In Flanders Fields”, written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae during the First World War. This is the most frequently read and quoted poem about war. It is the mention of poppies in the first and last verses that has turned this flower into an emblem of remembrance and a symbol of new growth in the devastation left by war. We must all remember the terrible toll wrought by the First World War: the death of 16.5 million people, including 9.7 million military personnel. The Second World War, the bloodiest conflict in our history, saw the deaths of 60 million souls, one third of which were military personnel. Please visit www.veterans.gc.ca for more information about the Remembrance Day campaign.

South Surrey-based act’s new album features roots and country music

Sumner Brothers release ‘raw’ new CD Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t’s been a long time in the making, but it was worth waiting for. South Surrey-based act The Sumner Brothers have a new CD, I’ll Be There Tomorrow, that successfully sums up their authentic ‘so raw it’s bloody’ approach to roots and country music. What Brian and Bob Sumner, and long-time collaborators Mike Ardagh (drums and percussion) and James Meger (electric and upright bass) have wrought is not so much an album as a movie. It comes across as a series of needle-drops meant to support well-crafted film sequences, the soundtrack for a modern, inherently-watchable western full of brooding silences and stubborn adherence to simple codes of behaviour the morally compromised may not recognize. Principally recorded, appropriately enough, in a log cabin in the mountains near Merritt, I’ll Be There Tomorrow has all the classic ingredients: heartache, hard-bitten toughness and don’t-mess-with-me defiance (Toughest Man In Prison Camp); vengeance and obligation

(Going Out West, which actually salutes the immortal mantra ‘a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do’); and even unexpected, touching tenderness (You Will Find Me). Two covers, Townes Van Zandt’s Colorado Girl and That’s Alright by Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudup, blend seamlessly into the panorama of pain, passion and possible redemption. Over the half-decade since they first began developing their act, Brian (who adds multiinstrumental skills to growling baritone vocals) and Bob (who plays guitar and sings tenor in a disarmingly unaffected way) have won praise in Vancouver – and as far afield as Europe – for being the real thing. People recognize the genuineness of the Sumners’ music as they themselves have responded to some of their own idols – Johnny Cash and Stompin’ Tom Connors, for instance. “The word honesty comes up quite a bit,” Brian acknowledged, during a recent interview. “That honesty aspect comes from country music. We’ve taken the truth of country music lyrics and added the influences of all the other music we listen to.”

File photo

South-Surrey based Sumner Brothers have a new CD coming out. The brothers, who just completed a West Coast tour, are aware that by steadfastly following their own path they’ve chosen a harder road than attempting to follow the formulas of music marketers and their write-bycommittee hit factories – but at least it’s their own road. “It attracts a certain kind of fan – our defintive fan is a die-hard,” said Bob. “We hope there’s enough of us out there that the market is big

enough,” Brian added. The circumstances of the recording added to the rough and ready feel, they said. “We’ve been very lucky with our albums – the first one was recorded on Galiano Island by a local guy, Ben Brown,” Bob said. “This one was recorded in a really big, beautiful log cabin belonging to one of our dad’s childhood friends (Jim Tortyna), who used to own The Yale. Most of the writing

was done beforehand, but the location was really inspiring when capturing the vocals.” “It placed a limitation on what we could do,” said Brian. “It forced us to hunker down and work with what we’d got, which gave it a raw quality – we didn’t have any soundproof booths in the cabin.” It took a while for them to be ready to release the album – so long, in fact, that Ardagh and Meger have since departed the band, with mutual good wishes, to work on their own projects. “They were with us four or five years, and they set a standard for us,” Bob said. But over the process of touring and playing, the Sumners have continued to perfect their sound, improve their technical capabilities and hone their songwriting. Locally, fans of the Sumners can watch for news of an exciting new project – the brothers are interested in launching a school for aspiring young musicians where they can give back some of the benefits they have reaped from the people they have worked with.

included the Peninsula Estates clubhouse, Whitecliff Retirement Residence, and, for the last six years, the Pacific Carlton. The tone of the concerts has also changed, Neal and Jones recall. Baritone Colin Mason has appeared frequently in the concerts since the mid 1980s, when he was singing with the Vancouver Opera. He remembers that when he first performed with White Rock Chamber Music he was told one of his favourite pieces, the Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein II classic Old Man River, wasn’t classical enough to be included in the program. Since that time, Mason’s rendition of Old Man River has become an audience favourite, and while classical instrumentals are still a major feature of the concerts, they have also been augmented by light opera, jazz and even dance. The upcoming Christmas program, on Dec. 8 at Crescent Gardens, offers a special treat, as 10 young singers, speakers and instrumentalists will present A Child’s Christmas in Wales, based on the famous Dylan Thomas piece. Crescent Gardens is located at 1222 King George Blvd. (next to Pacific Inn) Showtime Nov. 10 is 7:30 p.m.

Somehow she managed to balance the demands of that professional life with her roles as a loving wife and mother, and yet still find time for her enthusiasm for music of all kinds. It seems she met it all as she met everything in life, with a complete and selfless empathy and generosity that can be called many things, but is best described as love. We can spend endless hours bemoaning fate and mourning a life we feel ended far too soon. All of that is far beyond our control and scope of knowledge. What we can know is that, in her own unique and quiet way, Jane – in her love of music, in her love of life – touched all of those who met her, taking us far beyond all the trivial grievances and dissatisfactions that distract us in the day to day. For that privilege we can be grateful indeed. A service will be held for Jane this Sunday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. at Crescent United Church, 2756 127 St., followed by a celebration of her life at Camp Alexandra, 2916 McBride Ave. (in lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Jack Velker Legacy Project) For Randy, for their two sons – for all the family and friends Jane left behind – Sunday’s events are our chance to let them know she will be remembered, and fondly.

Former White Rock resident Trischa Buhler in her Chilliwack home. Burns Lake and after a few years of married life, they made the decision to leave the northern community for the Lower Mainland. After living in both New West and White Rock, Buhler finally settled in Chilliwack and decided to try something completely different and enroled in a veterinarian-assistant course. After her son Noah was born, she left her position at the animal hospital and decided to devote her time to her family. Eventually, she began teaching clarinet and sax out of her home, something that she continues to do to this day. For three years, she also coconducted the Chilliwack Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, along with David Voth. “We shared the conducting responsibilities and I worked with the wind instruments while David handled the string instruments. He’s amazing at what he does and we were a good team. I loved

every minute of it but after three years I just needed to pull back and I had to start doing things with my family,” she explained. Trischa currently works with Chilliwack School of Performing Arts and her five-year-old son, Noah, seems to be following in his mother’s footsteps. “He was involved with CSOPA’s ‘Playmates’ program designed for three- to five-year-olds and he absolutely loved it,” she smiled. Soon after that experience, Trischa was asked if she would allow Noah to be part of this past summer’s Theatre under the Stars production of Titanic. She consented and Noah was excited to play the part of young Jack Thayer. “There were 45 cast members and 21 orchestra members; I was among them. Noah had a wonderful experience and a colleague of mine stood in for me in the orchestra pit for one of the nights so that I could actually sit in the audience to watch it. It was just amazing,” she said.

Trischa Buhler’s parents wanted the best for their two daughters. They went out of their way to ensure that their horizons were expanded and there was also the expectation that they would learn to play a musical instrument. Buhler started out on the piano but after awhile she began to lose interest, and it was at this point that she made the switch to the clarinet. This woodwind instrument revived her interest and she soon began to explore others. “I also learned to play the trumpet, trombone, French horn, bassoon, the bass guitar and the drums,” she listed. While she was quite proficient on a great number of instruments by the time she hit high school, she quickly added the tenor sax to her list so that she could join the Chilliwack Senior jazz band. Buhler has never looked back and for the last seven years has been playing in orchestra pits and enjoying every minute of it. “For the last two years, I have been playing in shows in Vancouver. The last one that I did was the Chutzpah! Festival which is held annually at the Norman Rothstein Theatre and celebrates Jewish arts and culture,” she explained. After high school, she attended the University of Victoria, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in education. “After UVic, I taught in Burns Lake for eight years. I taught band and jazz band in a high school for grades 7 through 12, but I also taught English, math and communications.” Buhler met her husband in

We’ve built a reputation of excellence.

• PLUMBING • HEATING • VENTILATION • DUCTING • CONSTRUCTION • RESTORATIONS Bro. Marv Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Ltd. is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Steve Carroll, former owner of Carroll Plumbing, White Rock Plumbing, and Steve Carroll Plumbing Ltd. Steve has over 30 years plumbing experience, most of it from working in the South Surrey and White Rock area.

Earl Marriott edges Edward Milne in injury-shortened game

Steve Carroll with Mario, co-owner of Bro.Marv Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Ltd.

Mariners get first victory BROMARV turned upfield and ran 50 yards for a touchdown. “He’s just an amazing athlete. He’s only in his first year of football, which is too bad, because he’s very athletic and has a lot of talent,” said EMS head coach Michael Mackay-Dunn. “He just took that ball and ran away with it.” The victory over the Wolverines, from Sooke, does come with something of an asterisk

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A quick-slant play between quarterback Josh Simpson and wide receiver Austin Semeniuk was enough to give the Earl Marriott Mariners its first win of the season Friday, 7-6 against the visiting Edward Milne Wolverines. The second-half pass was designed as a short-yardage play, but after the catch, Semeniuk

attached, as the game was called off midway through the third quarter, after a Milne player was injured seriously enough that an ambulance had to be called. The one-point win was not enough to get the Mariners into the playoffs – only the top two Tier 2 teams get a bump into Tier 1 playoffs – but it did serve as a morale boost for the South Surrey team, who’ve struggled › see page A40

Hawks split with Fraser Valley A chance to move up the BC Hockey Major Midget League standings slipped past the Valley West Hawks last weekend, due in part to the Western Canada Under-16 Challenge Cup in Calgary. In a two-game series with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, a team which had won just one of their first 12 games, the Hawks

managed only a split. But Valley West played without three players, who were part of Team BC which won gold at the Challenge Cup. The Hawks were without forwards Jakob Stukel and defenceman Parker Wotherspoon, both of Cloverdale, and forward Matthew Bradley of Surrey. Valley West won Saturday in

Chilliwack 3-1, but fell on home ice 2-1 Sunday in Langley. Now at 7-5-2 (won-lost-tied) on the season, the Hawks moved into a fourth-place tie with the Vancouver Chiefs in the 11-team MML, an elite league for 15-17 year-old players. The Hawks have a bye this weekend. - Rick Kupchuk

Football game stopped due to injury › from page A39 this year with a small, inexperienced roster. “The kids were pumped, sure, but also we were concerned with the injured (Milne) player, and making sure he was OK,” MackayDunn said. “But it wasn’t just that we won the game, but the way the guys won it, too. We were down 6-0 at halftime, but we came out in the second half like a totally different team.” Marriott’s senior squad has one more game this week, Friday on the road at Surrey’s Frank Hurt Secondary. The Mariners’ junior varsity team, meanwhile, are playoffbound after reeling off three straight victories to qualify for the post-season. The win streak began with a win over Langley Secondary, and continued with an overtime victory

Players from both teams huddle up when an ambulance arrives. over Holy Cross two weeks ago, and a 16-6 win on a mud-covered and rain-soaked field last week in Seaquam against the Seahawks. “It was just a mud bath,” MackayDunn explained of the win. “Real estate was hard to come by in those conditions, but the kids embraced it and rose to the occasion. They persevered and stepped it up. It was great.”

Next week, the Mariners will travel to Nanaimo to play John Barsby Secondary in their first playoff game. “A month ago, we could have packed it in, but the guys kept battling,” Mackay-Dunn said. “And now all I know is that we have to go beat Barsby, and then focus on the next round after that.”

She was predeceased by her mother and father Enid and Arthur Matthews.

Sewer clogs costing cities more than $2 million per year

Metro Vancouver to fine grease violators Jeff Nagel Black Press

Nasty sewer clogs caused by grease buildups are costing Metro Vancouver and its member cities more than $2 million a year to fix busted and backed-up pipes. Now the regional district has set new rules backed by fines in a bid to force all restaurants and commercial kitchens to limit how much oil or fat they send down drains. A regional bylaw passed in October is now in force, telling affected businesses how big a grease trap they need and how often it must be pumped out. “Grease-clogged sewers are an avoidable problem that all taxpayers should not have to pay for,” said

North Vancouver City Mayor Dar- of Gilbert Road each year to fix rell Mussatto, who chairs Metro’s grease-clogged lines. utilities committee.

Establishments that are in breach of the rules face re-inspection fees of up to $300 and some offences – like not having a grease trap at all – carry a minimum fine of $2,000. They’re required to pump traps at least four times a year and maintain records available for inspection by Metro. But exactly how many firms will fully comply isn’t clear. Metro wants the province to give it the power to levy much heavier fines of more than $10,000 because of how few restaurants and kitchens obey the grease-handling rules that were already in place. “We’re looking for upwards of half a million or a million dollars,” Mussatto said, but added that would be in extreme cases, such

as an industry discharging large volumes of oil. Victoria has made no move yet to grant the request and Mussatto acknowledged the smaller fines in the bylaw may not prove a big enough deterrent to get everyone to comply with the tougher rules. Metro also needs the province to give its sewerage and drainage district the same ticketing authority other municipalities and the main regional district have to deal with smaller violations. Until that happens, Metro would have to go to court to impose fines, a step officials admit is impractical for minor offenders. Metro consulted business groups on the changes over the past two years.

First aboriginal Queen’s representative in B.C.

Point retires as lieutenant-governor Tom Fletcher Black Press

Wearing a kilt representing the clan of a Scottish ancestor, Lt.-Gov. Steven Point ended his five-year term Thursday with a unique ceremony at the B.C. legislature. In the ornate rotunda now decorated by his hand-carved dugout canoe, B.C.’s first aboriginal Queen’s representative joined a choir and band to perform an original song he dedicated to the people of B.C. Premier Christy Clark presented Point and his wife Gwendolyn with gifts, and

Point was visibly moved when presented with a hand-crafted guitar made in Kamloops. Clark praised the couple for their work during the past five years, including a partnership with Rotary Clubs on literacy in remote B.C. communities. Clark recounted Point’s career, starting as a chief of his own First Nation, moved on to Grand Chief of the Sto:lo Tribal Council, earning two law degrees, becoming a provincial court judge and serving as chief commissioner of the B.C. Treaty Commission before accepting Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s invita-

tion to serve as lieutenantgovernor. “He set out to be a role model for First Nations people, to inspire young people, and he has reached that goal,” Clark said. Point praised Clark and said the country needs more women leaders, and also showed his penchant for humour. “Well, it’s all over,” Point said. “I feel like Dorothy at the end of the Wizard of Oz. I’m going to go home now.” Chilcotin rancher Judith Guichon is to be sworn in Friday as B.C.’s 29th lieutenantgovernor.

Judith Guichon sworn in as lieutenant-governor

A ‘steward of the land’ Tom Fletcher

Merritt-area rancher Judith Guichon was sworn in Friday as B.C.’s 29th lieutenant-governor. Guichon and her husband Bruno Mailloux were welcomed to the B.C. legislature with a blessing by Lottie Lindley, elder of the Upper Nicola Band of the Okanagan Nation. Guichon, 65, succeeds Steven Point, who completed his term Thursday. She is the second female lieutenant-governor in B.C. history, following former MP Iona Campagnolo, who preceded Point. In her inaugural speech, Guichon said she will carry on the work of her predecessors, including support for literacy and reconciliation with aboriginal people in B.C. As owner of the historic Gerard Guichon Ranch on the shore of Nicola Lake and a former president of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, she vowed to continue her work as a “steward of the land. “Many of the first ranchers, including the Guichon family,

Surrey man shot in foot over drug deal gone bad Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A Surrey man was nursing an injury to his foot last week after being shot because of a drug deal gone awry. Police encountered the victim

just after midnight Oct. 30 when he flagged them over in North Surrey. The 34-year-old Newton man had been at the Cedar Gardens apartment complex in the 13700block of King George Boulevard

Faith

looking to acquire some drugs. The inebriated man discovered he had no cash, so left his cellphone and other personal items with the dealers while he went to the bank machine, where he realized he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the

money in his account. He went back and asked for his cellphone and was told he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it, noting that was the cost of wasting their time. An argument ensued, and one of the men pulled out a shotgun and

shot the man in the foot. He gathered himself and flagged down a police car. He was taken to hospital where he was treated. Police returned to the apartment, and while the suspects were gone.

TIRED OF LOW RETURNS?

MLAs post travel expenses Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C.’s 85 MLAs have begun disclosing their travel expenses, posting total amounts charged on their government-issued credit cards but not the details of where they drove, flew or dined. The B.C. legislature’s internal finances are being dragged into the 21st century in response to a damning report from Auditor General John Doyle released in July. The audit found that MLA credit card bills were being paid without receipts, and the legislative assembly hadn’t produced financial statements despite a 2007 recommendation from the

previous auditor general. In response, the Legislative Assembly Management Committee, chaired by Speaker and Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff, began holding its meetings in public. Two new financial officers were hired to address what Doyle described as “pervasive deficiencies” in financial accountability of legislature operations. The management committee authorized the first release Wednesday, showing six months of expenditures for each MLA up to the end of September. The report breaks spending down in categories, including accommodation, daily meal allowance and three categories

of travel. MLAs representing districts farthest from Victoria generally run up the highest expenses. Leading the pack in the first report is Robin Austin, NDP MLA for Skeena, with $53,606 in expenses from April to September. Austin’s total includes $19,486 in “Speaker approved travel,” including a trip to Colombo, Sri Lanka in September to attend a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference. MLA expenses are to be posted quarterly from now on at www. leg.bc.ca/mla/remuneration/ travel_expenses.htm where the first reports are posted.

Onni commissions study from Urban Analytics

Adding value near rapid transit The availability of rapid transit is one of the most important things that buyers are looking for in a home development in recent years, and a report by Urban Analytics for Onni has demonstrated the increase in value that comes with this convenience. “Transit plays a big factor in the market,” says Nick Belmar of Onni. “This report just substantiates our argument about what people could expect when they buy near transit.” The report notes that new condos located along the Canada Line in Richmond and the Cambie corridor saw an increase in value, with Richmond seeing an increase of 21

per cent and Cambie finding a 33 per cent rise between 2009 and 2010. In Richmond, values increased by 15 per cent before the line was completed, and then six per cent over its first year. Cambie saw similar results, with a 19 per cent increase before the line opened and a continued rise after. “Values of newer condos located near a new rapid transit line will see an increase in value in the period ... preceding the completion of a rapid transit system, and ... while the rate of value appreciation tends to slow in the months after ... completion, higher values are sustained in the long term,” says Urban Analytics’ Michael Ferreira.

developers recognize this area as a hot spot.” Carlsen says. “Buyers want to live here.” It’s no wonder, with Willowbrook Shopping Centre just a five minute walk away, and schools, recreation, dining and shopping all in the neighbourhood. The area is incredibly family friendly, but it also works well for first-time buyers and downsizers alike. Owners will be able to take possession of their new place at the

end of 2013. Over 50 per cent of the 69 homes are already sold, and Carlsen attributes this to three very important factors. “This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” he says. “I really think it comes down to value.” Two-bedroom, two-bathroom homes at Salix start at $229,900. For more information, visit www.salixliving.com or call 604-530-0054.

‘It’s really worked out well’

Salix offers great value in Surrey’s Clayton Heights By Kerry Vital

Woodbridge Homes is bringing a touch of modern elegance to Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood with its condominium development, Salix. That elegance starts outside your home, with the five-storey building’s classic Georgian-inspired architecture. Red brick and styled ironwork combine with the craftsman woodwork accents to make for a chic entrance. Salix is surrounded by lush greenery, and includes a courtyard for residents with arbors and benches.

This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen.

Inside, buyers have three different interior design schemes to choose from: two contemporary and one traditional. The contemporary schemes (called Sallow and Osier) feature stone countertops and chic white satin flat panel upper cabinets and Teak or Wenge laminate flat panel lower cabinets, complemented by a modern stainless-steel feature hood fan and a ceramic tile backsplash with glass tile accents in the kitchen. Meanwhile, the traditional scheme (called Willow) includes elegant granite countertops and Victorian cabinetry in a dark wood, with its own custom Broan hood fan and tumbled limestone backsplash with a custom hand-set centrepiece. Both options are beautiful, so it’s up to you what style you want in your home. “This allows purchasers to pick and choose,” says Carlsen. “It’s really worked out well.” All three options feature stainlesssteel appliances and under-cabinet lighting, along with spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers surrounded by ceramic tile and well-lit large vanity mirrors, so your morning routine will be easy as possible. There are 15 different floorplans available, ranging from 474 to 1,290 square feet in a variety of one-, twoand three-bedroom configurations, and all have proven popular with buyers, Carlsen says. “The larger ones have done really well with downsizers. They don’t need a
